“Great, A must do”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We visited Acadia National Park on October 12-13, 2012. We opted to drive - glad we did. The car would let us stop when we wanted to stop. Fall foliage fantastic. The park loop had signs giving directions to everything.


This is a must trip for all with a camera.

“Best parts of the island”
Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

We took an organized tour on a bus. Though it took longer than a self drive I felt the expertise of the guide and the skill of the driver made the cost worthwhile. This drive shows you a lot of beauty: ocean views, beaches, coves, lakes, beautiful views into valleys and over mountain sides. Bar Harbor could exist without this road but the road explains what the Rockefellers had in mind when the built a "cottage" on he island. Of course, we were told that if they had had a choice the roads would have been restricted to horse drawn carriages. You should definitely enjoy this experience however you prefer to enjoy it.

“Gets busy when the cruise ships are in”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

The free bus service sponsored by LL Bean is great and takes you all over the park and its many stops. The folks at the station on the village green and the drivers were very helpful

“Take a drive and enjoy!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Just came back from a short trip to Bar Harbor. It is hard to describe the natural beauty of Acadia National Park, simply breathtaking. Definitely pay the ten bucks for the pass to drive through the park, which is good for a week, well worth the money.

“Cycle tour of Acadia National Park”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Visted the park during a cruise stop in Bar Harbour. Hired cycles locally and the park is just a 10 minute ride away. Once in the park the signposting is excellent and the views fantastic, with plenty of places to take photos/video. We visted on a weekday and there were very few people around even though the weather was glorious. Well worth a visit and Bar Harbour itself is stunning.
